Shopping Time

This evening I get to go shopping for the holiday table cloths for the store. It will be fun to get out of the store for a little bit, which is something that I won't be doing much of in the next few months, and find a nice pattern for the store. We don't upgrade every year so this will be the pattern for the next 5 to 10 years. (No pressure.)

One of the things that my friends and co-workers frequently mock me for this time of year is my early shopping habits. Yes, it is true that I already have most of my Christmas shopping finished. Yes, I do already have some birthday shopping for next year completed. I feel that if a gift is perfect for someone, then the timing of the purchase does not matter. It is better to get it at that moment than to try and remember it later. As for Christmas shopping, there is not much time for that when you are trying to help everyone with their own sugar free needs for the holidays so I always try and have this finished by the middle of November at the latest.

Quiz Day: What's Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient)?

Your EQ is 147

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

Let's hear it from you. Leave us a comment and share your EQ with us. I know that some of us have had a busy and stressful week already with work or school or life in general, but the halfway point is quickly approaching. Hang in there and you'll be fine. Enjoy the refreshing rain tomorrow.

Your EQ is 120.

Some of those questions needed a third 'in between' option. :)

What a wonderful day!

***Your EQ is 147***

It was hard to be completely honest because there was such an obvious "right" answer to each question.
